Ok, let's make the change happen. However, we usually do not apply
behavior-changing-fix to any back branches (unless it's really
necessary, for example security fixes). So we should apply the change
to git head (a.k.a 3.5).

In the mean time we also need make similar changes to all commands
including pg_md5 and pcp_*.
